    will you marry me frenchfryqueen? she is always so nice to me I think I am in love lol..

    I wonder when I will get my next round, dragonfly how is it going? are you close to sending? I think you have Kellys correct? the red/white quilt. I am gearing up for it, she has such a pretty curvy center design I am curious what your adding around her block. I am not a curvy working person at all.. sigh. those are for the 'other' quilters. one day I will get brave enough to try a few curves. A class in that would be wonderful. I think I am a hands on learner. Too hard to look at a picture and figure it out I need someone to guide me then it clicks better.

    Yes! Yes! A thousand times yes!!! We could cook and eat and sew all day!!!! I would have to keep my hubby around as a nighttime side dish though. LOL!

    When I was in college, I volunteered every year with the freshman orientation program. One of our rules was, "Clap for everyone like you're clapping for your best friend." I loved that quote, and it's always stuck with me.

    OMG I not done laughing yet! You are so funny french fry- hope the "brat" says yes. She should since she was the one that asked She'll want you to sew and she will cook I think. That woman knows her spices, trust me, she can cook circles around me for flavor and intensity. Only wish I was that smart. I just put in on the old Bar-b-que with a little steak or chicken flavoring and say ta-da...it's done!

    You gals crack me up and after the week I have had I really needed the laugh - TY

    Brat - Yes, I have Kelly's and it does not have any curves - all sharp angles but placed so as to give the illusion of curves/movement. Neat trick however the size has given me a little hiccup.

    I have my regular pieces and my appliqued rose corner stones done and ready to attach however I have to come up with a piece (x4 since I need one for each side) that measures 5 1/2" by 6 1/2" unfinished. Oh and it has to coordinate with the other pieces!

    Really struggling with it but I should have it done by the time this weekend is over. (fingers crossed)

    Jaba - there is nothing wrong with what you did.

    The total measurement of the center is 29 1/2 x 29 1/2 which is not divisible by three so I have to do some "fudging" with one section of my border to make it balanced visually.

    My fault for not stating when we started this that all center measurements should be divisible by three. This makes it easier to make pieced borders - I now know.

    Guess I didn't measure Kelly's center, I just put my border on it so I could break the pattern. Sorry it's giving you troubles. Thought I put the right size border on but if I didn't, please let me know.

    Jaba you did just fine - please don't worry.
    I am the one who planned a border and then realized that I was off in my measurements. Duh!

    it goes nicely with the center. question if everyone adds a border that big these quilts could become huge in no time.. I forgot but if quilt is set on point then added too does that lose one extra border then? I am a moron sometimes when it comes to remember what rules go to what swap. Don't get me wrong it is perfect for the block but how big will it get in the end? and also do you want all batiks on that center? or is regular fabric going to work with it too? I messed up a while back and used both and got a waffle look to the edge ..wavy? help you quilt experts before I do the wrong thing!!!

    Sorry took me so long to respond but was out with mom all day. We did the measuring and math and if you ladies put just a four and half inch border it will actually make it 3in smaller than if it was on point. No you don't have to use all batiks. It is 37" square right now and would end up being 69" if everyone did a 4 inch border (finished)

    Thanks for the info Melinda, was mainly wondering about the batiks, etc. The pic just made it look so big I didn't know if she wanted those same size borders or not.
